  • "Great service"

    We are so pleased to see the ferry running between Playa Santiago and Valle Gran Rey as well as to San Sebastián. Great service, on time, easy to book on line and lovely clean ship. I don't think there is any catering on this service so I can't comment on that. Keep this brilliant service going please Fred Olson!

Playa Santiago Guide

On the south coast of the island of La Gomera in the Canary Islands lies the small town of Playa Santiago, also known as Playa de Santiago.

Playa Santiago used to be the busiest centre on the island with factories, a shipyard and a port exporting local bananas and tomatoes until the 1960s when the town was hit by a farming crisis.

However, tourism has bought new life to the town in the recent years. Situated in the sunniest area of La Gomera, Playa Santiago is now one of the most important tourist spots on the island. Its town centre is home to the outstanding parish church of Salvador del Mundo which contains a Christ from the 17th century and the hermitage of San Lorenzo.

Close to Playa Santiago in the Alajero area are a few other coastal places to visit, such as the beach of Erese.


Valle Gran Rey Guide

Valle Gran Rey is a town on the west side of La Gomera Island, Canary Islands.

Known as the ‘Valley of the Great King’, Valle Gran Rey got its name from the legendary King Hupalupa, the Canarian king who was here during the pre-Spanish times. Nowadays, the town has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in La Gomera.

Valle Gran Rey boast a range of the best beaches on the island. With fine black sand and pure blue waters, these beaches are what attract all the tourist to this town. A few of these beaches include the Playa de las Vueltas near the port, the Charco del Conde which is a small natural bay, and the Playa del Ingles which has a beautiful natural setting not to be found anywhere else in the Canary Islands.
